Lights! Camera! Disruption!


Despite living smack dab in the middle of one of the busiest cities in the world, our apartment is situated on a dead-end block, meaning there's virtually no traffic outside -- vehicle or pedestrian. So it was perplexing when I was woken up by loud dialogue, dialogue that seemed to be repeated over and over in a loop. (I work evenings, so shoot me for sleeping till noon each day!) Turns out they were filming something directly below our bedroom windows -- something that looked rather dumb when I got a closer look, involving an older man running out of a rowhouse with a sword(!), chasing someone down the street. No idea what it was for. But in a year or so if you see something matching this description, let me know! 

UPDATE: Damian just sent me his photos and by piecing them together, it appears it’s “The Blacklist,” which apparently is a long-running series (I’ve never heard of) on NBC starring James Spader. The best part is that his “Pretty in Pink” costar Andrew McCarthy is a frequent director. Mystery solved! 

The irony, of course, is that the show is set in Washington, D.C., yet is filmed in NYC, which is normally a city that is faked by filming in cheaper locales such as Toronto.
